Just outside the small town of Shelby, NC on the edge the rolling foothills sits the Turner Estate, a French inspired chateau, a magnificent property that will entice you as you pass by.

Or Rapunzel letting down her golden hair for the prince who just rode up on horseback to climb up and whisk her away to his far off kingdom. Back to reality – you wonder what really does entail to this majestic abode? This impressive property is a must see!!
